ABOUT Katharine MillarD

Course Director & Senior Instructor at Elixr Health Clubs

Meet Katharine Millard, the Course Director and Senior Instructor at Elixr Health Clubs.

As one of the founding Pilates instructors at Elixr, Katharine played a pivotal role in shaping the Elixr Pilates program from the ground up.

She holds a Master’s Degree in Health Science (Exercise and Sports Science), a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Dance, and a Graduate Diploma of Education. Her Pilates journey started in her teenage years at The McDonald College of Performing Arts in Sydney, where she trained under the renowned Pilates Instructor, Rael Isacowitz. From there, she intertwined her love for Pilates with her career as a dance teacher and performer.

Katharine’s journey took a turn when she became a physical education teacher. During this time, she dove headfirst into the world of Pilates instruction, embarking on four comprehensive Pilates training courses that gave her an in-depth perspective of this transformative practice.

She was among the first to introduce Pilates to Sydney, after a trip to a fitness convention in New York in the 90s. Beyond her work at Elixr, she collaborates with her twin sister, Elisabeth, who runs a boutique physiotherapy and exercise studio in Mosman, Sydney. Together, they cater to a diverse clientele, ranging from Olympic athletes to individuals on their path to rehabilitation.

Katharine Millard is a force to be reckoned with in the world of Pilates and fitness, and she’s here to inspire, guide, and empower you on your education journey.
